Music from the Hills of Home began in November, 1989, with hosts Katie Laur and Buddy Griffin. The show was intended as a bluegrass format with forays into other kinds of roots music -- its title, Music from the Hills of Home -- was meant to encompass many kinds of music which might have a "down-home" feel. Wayne Clyburn joined Katie as co-host in late 1989, when Buddy left to join a musical group on the road, and Wayne and Katie have grown in first-hand knowledge and expertise where bluegrass and old-time country music are concerned. Their in-studio guest interviews have included Bela Fleck, John Hartford, Peter Rowan, and too many more to list. Join them from 6 to 9 on any given Sunday for the best in acoustic roots music.

“VOICES4theSoul” is a show that features meaningful songs that connect us all.Songs about things like courage, faith in one’s self, taking care of our planet and each other, grace and peace. Sometimes we look at metaphors in songs like mountains and valleys, falling, climbing, and flying. Usually the artists are ones you’ll recognize from other WNKU playlists, but sometimes new artists are introduced and even an occasional short interview is included to share the artist’s intimate stories and insights on the meaning and motivation behind their songs.
